Sales drop for manufacturers in June

  • Print

Manitoba’s manufacturers lost all the ground they gained in May with a 1.9 per cent drop in sales in June.

Statistics Canada said today the province’s manufacturers shipped out $1.29 billion worth of goods in June, which was $24 million less than in the previous month.

That wiped out all of the gains they enjoyed in May, when sales were up 1.9 per cent from April. June’s decline was the third in the first six months of 2013, agency data shows.

Nationally, Canada’s manufacturing industry saw its sales fall by 0.5 per cent to $48.2 billion from just under $48.5 billion in May. That followed a 0.9 per cent increase from April to May.

Statistics Canada said May’s decline was Canada’s fourth in six months, and that sales have been on a slow decline at the national level since the spring of 2012.
